BALTIMORE - November 14, 2011

The National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers Corp. has announced qualifying entries in 53 categories for its 11th annual awards honoring the best of video game art, technology, and production.

The Qualifying Ballot can be found here.

Challenges to eligibility, as well as additional entries, will be accepted until Tuesday, January 31, 2012, at 5 p.m. PST. The final nominations will be announced on February 19, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton, 9876 Wilshire Blvd. Please R.S.V.P. to Thomas Allen at tallen at navgtr dot org.

Each year, 640 qualified voters determine the recipients of the NAVGTR AWARDS.

More than any other professional group in the industry, testers spend the most time playing games and are therefore most apt to evaluate them on a technical level with intense detail or analysis.

Reviewers in the media also spend a great deal of time analyzing and writing about games from a creative perspective to aid consumers in their evaluations. The best reviewers sometimes parlay their reputation into industry jobs as producers or testers.

For these reasons, the recommendation of testers and reviewers serves as a special mark of quality that balances important creative and technical perspectives and represents the most hard-core enthusiasts from industry and media.


NAVGTR Corp. is a 501©(6) non-profit corporation devoted to promoting and recognizing the developments and achievements of the interactive entertainment industry for public awareness and education.

Through annual awards, television specials, videos, special events, and other future plans, the Academy hopes to preserve the history of the medium as well as honor the creative and technical individuals who have paved the way for new ideas and innovations.
